Update from my dealer today. Expected in-hand delivery date is December 7th (fingers crossed)
Well, crossing my fingers being crossed did not help. Today the dealer told me it should arrive at port this week. So I'm guessing I'll see it sometime mid-week next week. Again....fingers crossed
Update....my Velar is still sitting at the Port and should be released "any day". I'll believe it when I see it. Hopefully before the new year.
Update....I did not hear from the dealer all week. So, I decided to visit them unannounced to add some pressure eyeball-to-eyeball. My salesman said it was a "hectic day" for him today. He did say that a delivery of new LR's arrived today. He asked me if I wanted to take a walk and look at the new arrivals to see if mine had arrived. Like I would answer anything but 'Yes'. :) Much to our surprise, there she was!!!! I can confirm it's finally in the dealer's lot. It was late, so my salesman is arranging for my PDI for this Saturday. Below find a a few pics with a low-res iPhone. It was evening dark and raining, so poor image quality.

Looks great but did they put the steering wheel on the wrong side? 😉

Update....the dealer called me yesterday to say my PDI would not be ready until Wed./Thurs. of next week. I was SO disappointed. :evil: My disappointment must have been so obvious in my voice, that he said "he would see what he could do". He called with one hour to closing time and said you can pick it up for a Christmas weekend test drive. :D So, I have my Velar to drive hauling XMAS gifts, then back to the dealer on Wednesday to start the paperwork for him to arrange my three aftermarket option installations. After those, we will finalize the deal and I will own the RRV.
